TEXAS SCRAMBLE FORMAT

The Texas Scramble is one of the most popular tournament formats in golf.

Used in charity events and pro-am golf tournaments, especially those involving professional athletes from other sports, the Texas Scramble offers numerous formats for fun-loving golfers.

All offer a combination of strategy, camaraderie, skill, and heartbreak. All are fun if played in the right spirit.

Originally called Captain’s Choice, since the leading player in each group made the choice on shot selection, the format became widely known as the Texas Scramble. It flourished in Texas during the Depression and attained great popularity in Las Vegas in the 1950s. It eventually become a staple of charity events and pro-am tournaments and was played a lot on the LPGA tour.

About 20 years ago a grade-school teacher in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula convinced Oldsmobile to sponsor a “World Series” Scramble tournament. The tournament grew in popularity over the years. Today, the National Oldsmobile Scramble pits teams of four against each other in a playoff.

The teams must win both local and regional elimination tournaments to qualify for the national event.

Basic Format

The Texas Scramble’s basic format is simple and straightforward:

Each player hits a tee shot on. The best ball, as determined by the captain, is selected for the second shot. Each member of the team hits his or her shot from that spot. The process continues until the hole is played out.

In a Pure texas Scramble no golf handicaps are used in the scoring and there are no restrictions on shot selections. Your best player’s shot can be used 18 times off the tee. The Oldsmobile Scramble uses this format except that the total number of handicap strokes in any one foursome must be at least 43.
